This was the first pack a got, from a discount box at borders. And I got the pack home that night and did a reading. The reading was scarily accurate, even though I'd never touched a pack before in my life! Since then the deck has continued to make very accurate and useful readings.
However, if you're new to tarot, then I would not recommend this deck (unless you have very wide knowledge of Nordic and celtic folklore and a firm understanding of the Futhark Runes). The Minor arcana can be very difficult to understand without using the guidebook, and I have tot say that I personally disagree with some of the meanings given. But an excellent deck none-the-less!
